Sketches in Thyme #269

Happy March everyone!!  This week at Sketches in Thyme we are working a fabulous sketch by Sara Mischler.  I really love the versatility of this sketch there are so many options to go with.  I happened to have the perfect paper laying on my desk, from a clean up in my scrap room, that also uncovered this picture of my nephew during All Stars last ball season.

I loved this paper from KaiserCraft it just worked perfectly with our team colors of  black and gold!  Be sure to check out all the other great sketches this month and get yours entered for a chance at  a gift card from Creative Embellishments.

Let's Scrap Sketches

Can you believe we are already in the middle of March - this year is flying by!!
We have a fabulous sketch over at Let's Scrap Sketches starting today and it is appropriate seeing as all I have had in my area is rain the past few days.

Even though my pictures have nothing to do with rain, they worked great with the sketch - a little back story - every year we try to send out photo cards at Christmas.  This year while at the beach for Thanksgiving we happened upon these fabulous outfits and I knew that we could have EPIC christmas cards with them.  It is a good thing my sweet in-laws like to play along with our schemes - LOL

Exciting news!! Let's Scrap Sketches!!

Happy March 1st!!!  And it is blowing in like a lion - we are expecting some uber strong thunderstorms today.  

Wow, March 1st, so far this year is flying by and I have some exciting news to start the month off with....  after about a year hiatus I am happy to announce that I have been invited back to the Let's Scrap Sketches Design Team and I am super excited to be back!!  We have awesome sketches twice a month that are sure to get you scrappy mojo flowing and a chance to win some great prizes too!!

We start March off with this fabulous 2 page sketch which worked great with these slip-n-slide pictures I had of my nephews and who doesn't love a slip-n-slide on a hot summer day??

And in a effort to use some of my stash of Echo Park paper (that I secretly hoard) I thought this turned out right cute - sometimes I think a busy background takes away from the pictures but in this case it turned out just right!!

You have until March 15th to join us and get your sketch posted for a chance to win gift certificate to The Scrapbook Circle!!

Sketches in Thyme #264

Happy February!!  I think we just skipped winter this year... as I am writing this listening to the neighbors weed eater with our back door wide open because it feels more like April here in Alabama...  I already have a case of spring fever going!!

So this week at Sketches in Thyme we have a fabulous sketch by Bev Code and while I have a case of spring fever I used this sketch for some long overdue Halloween pics I ran across of the twins/wrestlers.

Sketches in Thyme #259

Happy New Year folks!!  Let me tell you I am glad for the new start!!!

For those that didn't know, I lost my sweet sister, Annaeke, right before Christmas - it was totally unexpected but I know she is in heaven rejoicing!!  But our lives will never be the same without her around!!

I found time this past weekend at one of annual scrappy retreats to finish this layout which I absolutely adore by they way - there are just some many options you can do with this sketch!!

and yes the title is a bit of a play on words considering my name, but it was taken by me in Savannah, Ga so I reckon it just made sense!! ;)

Merry Christmas and Sketch #254

Merry Christmas Y'all!!  Can't believe we are almost at the end of another year and with that my last sketch reveal for Sketches in Thyme.

So for this last sketch by Shawn Lahr I went yet some baseball pics, one they are cute and the paper just happened to be right near by and not covered up with Christmas craftiness ;)

I made a few adjustments using a baseball mitt and stars (both cut with my silhouette-yea for me)
and baseball for journaling spot.  I even suprised myself with how cute it turned out.  The pics are of my super cute nephew Deacon and his first All-Star season as catcher, I think he took it pretty serious too!

Sketches in Thyme #224

Hey ya'll!!  So this is probably the quickest layout I have ever done and mainly because my days have been crazy, I almost missed my debut cause I was a day behind!!

I absolutely love this sketch by Cherie Averell - she is so stinking talented!!

I literally threw (baseball pun- ha) this together in about 30  minutes, but when you have such cute subjects in your pictures it is never hard to find a way to scrap them.  Since we are all about baseball with them around I thought these "game ball" pictures would be perfect to showcase how proud they were receiving these!!
